About the Leo Baeck Institute, New York – Archives

The Leo Baeck Institute, New York (LBI) Archives preserve and catalog family papers, community histories, personal correspondence, genealogical materials, and business and public records that touch upon virtually every aspect of the German-Jewish experience.

These records, entrusted to LBI by individuals, families, and organizations, form the foremost repository of collective memory for Central European Jewry, but they also document key aspects of Europe’s modern social and intellectual development. The archives offer insight into a number of themes, including Jewish religious scholarship, emancipation and assimilation, anti-Semitism, Jewish commercial life and entrepreneurship, the experience of persecution and emigration, the Holocaust, restitution, Jewish contributions to the arts and sciences, and the daily lives of German-speaking Jews.
